My artwork is about the recognition that Aboriginals also went to war along with people of non- Aboriginal backgrounds. It represents a shared respect as the two hands give one another a poppy and some rosemary. It represents reconciliation as the hands are coming together to share the two items of remembrance. They have green sleeves like that of the soldiers who went to war before us, representing Australia together in an act that’s given our home the ability to be safe and free for us all.
